I recommend using DBD::ODBC with iodbc and freetds instead.

Note that freetds has to be compiled for iodbc, and DBD::ODBC does as well. Here is the install sequence I used recently:

# Install libiodbc wget http://www.iodbc.org/downloads/iODBC/libiodbc-3.52.3.tar.gz && tar -xzf libiodbc-3.52.3.tar.gz && cd libiodbc-3.52.3 && ./configure && make && make install # Install freetds wget ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/ALPHA/freetds/stable/freetds-stab +le.tgz tar -xzf freetds-stable.tgz && cd freetds-0.63 && ./configure -with-iodbc && make && make install # Configure odbc.ini echo "[pcas2006] Database=pcas2006 Server=10.10.10.164 TDS_Version=8.0 Port=1433 Driver=/usr/local/lib/libtdsodbc.so" > /etc/odbc.ini # install DBD::ODBC perl -MCPAN -e'get DBD::ODBC' && cd ~/.cpan/build/DBD-ODBC-1.13 && export ODBCHOME=/usr/local && perl Makefile.PL && make && make install
I found that DBD::ODBC also seemed to handle some binary data better - DBD::Sybase seemed to truncate the data in one case when \0 was in the data.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
